Lee Banks Natural Championships
Welcome to the NPC Lee Banks Natural Championships (LBNC)
Olympian Lee Banks is dedicated to a healthy lifestyle and natural bodybuilding. He is proud to promote National Physique Committee (NPC) sanctioned LBNC for the fourth year in 2019. This 100% drug-tested by polygraph competition is a “must” for natural athletes who are up to the challenge of competing in the NPC. It’s also a first-timers dream . . . just ask last year’s Champions.
The NPC is the largest amateur bodybuilding league in the country and the only U.S. amateur league selected as an affiliate by the International Federation of Bodybuilding (IFBB). The IFBB is the largest professional bodybuilding organization in the world and the only pathway to the most well-known bodybuilding competition in the world, Joe Weider’s Olympia.
